Thanks @axelson for some very useful tips I was not yet aware of :+1:

E.g. CTRL + ] for bracket closing or the open command in IEx with a well configured $ELIXIR_EDITOR, or the path: "deps/something" in mix.exs.

I’m glad you found the tips helpful and thanks for posting the links to the slides! I’m a huge fan of path dependencies, they are SO helpful when working on a PR for a library that you use as well as for debugging the library.

And if anyone has questions I’m happy to take them!

Thanks for collating all the useful tips, I was gathering them one by one since I started learning Elixir and Phoenix.

I don’t remember if you mentioned #iex:break, but that’s super helpful as well.

I am going to rewatch your talk again and add it to a cheatsheet, introduced recently!

If someone has the timestamps for each feature, I can add it to the description of the video.

Love it.

Something like that is on the works.

So Instead of watching 10+ videos to figure out all tips, tricks & best practices, we can have a single place for learning.

Definitely my favorite talk at the conf!
